Aims and Scope

The goal of this mini-workshop is to bring together experts from both mathematics and (electrical) engineering working on topics related to modeling, simulation and optimization of electric machines in either academia or industry. The workshop aims at providing a basic understanding of tools and workflows used in industry and at identifying challenges and common topics of interest. We plan to have a loose atmosphere and encourage discussion at any time during presentations.



Since we want to leave enough room for detailed discussion, the following schedule is only meant as a rough estimate:
